Venus has gone direct and it has some pretty explicit instructions for me. As told by the results of this check-in spread.


1. What is the state of my heart space at this time? KNIGHT OF WANDS. I laughed out loud at the sight of this Knight. Proud, irreverent, eyes closed to their surroundings and really anything anyone might say in assist- if it doesn’t vibe with what they think is best. That’s me about this topic. Oh, I’m very open-hearted… but only when I want to be, how I want to be, and where I want to be. Which isn’t a bad thing- it’s served me well and let me take care of myself, but it isn’t always the best move. Especially when literally every single major reading, and now minor everyday readings like this one, are asking me to put the couer in courage and meet love in a new way.

2. What energy needs releasing? EIGHT OF SWORDS.  Around Ostara I received cards with essentially this message– that any perceived restrictions, obstacles, or incapability are an illusion. I’m not powerless in this space, in fact moving from a place of openness, love, and joy is my power.

3. What energy should be invited? ACE OF PENTACLES. Usually the cups suit is all about emotion, but I see my heart in that coin being offered. Pentacles are also about treasure, and my heart full of light and crystals and magic is my greatest treasure. It’s not the end of the world to offer it up and know that what makes it precious is also what protects it, so I’ll be fine.

4. Additional guidance to invite balance and flow? LOVE. Well, yes.

Love is lifeforce.
